Martha, Martha, you are anxious about many things, yet only one thing is necessary.  – Lk 10:41-42

Reflection. To love and listen, these are the marks of a true disciple.  Love is the necessary thing, but listening to wisdom helps one to distinguish between love in dreams and love in action.

Prayer. Dearest Lord, I want to give generously of myself without counting the cost, but I am so often a coward.  Teach me to be at peace within myself and free me from needless worry.
